    You can find BIOS updates at the motherboard or computer manufacturer's site.

    From what I read in those links, I think the problem is your drive is drawing too much power. I would consider getting a powered usb hub and connect the drive to that.

    You can get them in many places; online at sites like amazon or newegg, or in computers stores. Just make sure that it is a powered hub.
